New to our second hand section......

For all you romantics out there (and we know you do exist!) we have this fabulous ring, new to our secondhand section today.

This is a quality piece of vintage jewellery, featuring a diamond of estimated 0.25ct in an 18ct yellow gold and platinum mount, with foliate shoulders.

This is a beautiful piece, made all the more enchanting by the hand engraved inscription on the inside of the shank, 'TRUE LOVE'. If only we could know the full history of this unique piece!

June's Birthstone

If you were born in June you are lucky enough to have a choice of birthstones, pearls or moonstones.

Moonstones are a variety of Feldspar, famed for the internal reflection effect 'schiller', or adularescence, which gives moonstone its ethereal silver blue glow. This is caused by light reflecting from thin layers of feldspar, an effect that has been popular in jewellery since antiquity. Pliny, the Roman natural historian noted the shimmering appearance of moonstones, believing that the the appearance varied according to the various stages of the moon phase.

Moonstone is believed to have the ability to calm a fever, protect the wearer from harm and bring good fortune in matters of the heart. Pictured is a triple moonstone ring handmade by our in-house goldsmith and gem setter, and available in our Bodmin store.

Pearls are the other choice for June babies, traditionally given as wedding presents to bring good fortune to the happy couple. Symbols since antiquity of modesty, chastity and purity, pearls are valued for their 'orient', a subtle iridescence and reflection of light from the surface. Produced from either saltwater oysters or freshwater mussels pearls are formed by thin layers of nacre formed by the soft tissue part of the mollusc.

One of the most famous pearls in the world is 'la peregrina', weighing a huge 56 carats. Discovered near Panama in the 1500s and given to Phillip II of Spain, it was worn by numerous European royals. It was later was purchased by Richard Burton at a Sotheby's auction and gifted to Elizabeth Taylor as a valentines gift, and after her death passed into ownership of a private collector.

Both of these gemstones are beautiful examples of the wonders of the natural world, with great symbolic meaning, and are perfect for those special June birthdays!
